tv The O Reilly Factor FOX News February 2, 2012 5:00pm-6:00pm PST
this thursday, february the 2nd, 2012. for the journalists of fox news, i'm shepard smith, opinion, analysis and o'reilly begins now. i'lli back here tomorrow when it will be friday. >> bill:. >> bill: tonight. president obama believes that a safety net is all we need. >> newt gingrich going after romney going after the comment and we'll have no spin analysis. >> occupied wall street protestors interrupt a pro-life rally in rhode island throwing condoms at catholic school girls. we'll will have a special report. >> patriots are going to win, i don't care one or by 50. >> jesse waters on the bitter rivalry between new york and
boston over the superbowl and politics is. >> pro giants, go blue, another superbowl. >> bill: caution you are about to enter the no-spin zone. 9 factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. mitt rom romney and poor americans. we predicted last night. the fact that he addressed poor people in rather business like way is now a national issue. >> i'm in this race because i care about americans. i'm not concerned about the very poor. we have a safety net and if it needs repair i'll fix it. the very rich is doing just fine. i'm concerned about the heart of america that is the 90% of americans that are struggling. >> bill: the governor used a poor choice of words with the very poor and left is running
wild with it. so are some on the right. >> governor romney and president obama seem to believe that a, quote, safety net is all the poor needs. i don't believe that. what the poor need is a trampoline they soe they can spring up. >> bill: let's take a look at poverty in america. right now there are close to 50 million poor people in the u.s.a. back in 1964 it stood at 19% of the population. so the great society programs were launched by president lyndon johnson. more than 16 trillion dollars have been spent on welfare payments to the poor. heritage foundation estimates over the next ten years, an additional $10 trillion will be spent but the poverty rate is down 4 points. 16 trillion, four percentage point decline. welfare is not the trampoline newt gingrich is talking about. the dilemma for governor
romney is this, he is a rich guy. contrast that image to president obama who portrays himself as an organizer. he wants a massive intervention to redistribute income to the poor. that is what obamacare is all about. that is what tax the riches is all about. romney says, no, he wants the private sector to create jobs that will lead more people out of poverty. in the meantime, romney says he'll keep the welfare safety net in place. mistake he is making that he is not dealing with the true causes of poverty thereby showing real concern. that is what all politicians should do and causes are these: poor education, addiction, irresponsible behavior and laziness. that is right far left people. some folks are lazy. education front. america spent the highest amount in the world except for switzerland.
so if they aren't learning it's because of awful teachers and not money. addiction, 10% of the american population is involved with substance abuse. finally, irresponsible behavior. if you are a criminal and go to prison, you are going to have a hard time getting a good job. if you have a giant tattoo of a scorpion on the neck, i.b.m. will not hire you. personal choices can lead to prosperity or dereliction. there is usually a reason people are poor in a country that has more opportunity than any other place on earth. it almost always comes back to personal circumstances. all the government in the world is not going to change that. that is what governor romney should be taking but and that is what barack obama should be talking about and newt gingrich and everyone else. reaction joining us lawn ra ingraham. so the conservatives talk about the poverty thing.
what do you think about that? >> i think you hit the nail on the head, bill. the increasingly want tier solutions. they've heard both sides of the political aisle finger pointing. this has been going on for some time. now, we see country really on the brink. latest cbo report painting a very grim picture on this economy moving forward in the foreseeable future. when we talk about the poor, middle-class, i think we know what governor romney was tg about, but nevertheless he hasn't marinated himself in the conservative philosophy. >> bill: how do you do that? have i marinated myself? >> i think so. you are familiar maybe than the governor infused in business and doing the olympics and bain and all the stuff he was doing. but he wasn't maybe going back to listen ronald reagan's 1964
speech time to choose. he back in 64 sounded alarm about this government dependency that we were about to start triggering with the war on poverty. he knew about it in 1964 and for decades conservative writers have been looking at it. to lift up the economy and unleash free enterprise. the language was not the best. >> bill: and his words and barack obama desperately wrong and newt gingrich doesn't repay address that. four things i pinpointed, that is the caution of poverty. >> break down the family. >> bill: break down the family has to do with the irresponsible behavior that i talked about. the family breaks down, the adults don't do what they should do and the children suffer.
then the children are educated and terrible environment where they don't learn anything and they learn bad habits living with their parents. but the government can't legislate that so there is going to be poor people, always? >> and conservative concern, the instinct much to say like a boardroom problem solver. he is fix-it guy. newt flashed the conservative watching this that everybody -- mitt romney is not going to be the standard bearer of a new conservatism. he seize a problem and he puts out. >> bill: i'll tell you what if -- you should have heard me in the warmup. if mitt romney is elected president, he will governor to
the right. he has no choice. he has to. >> and he a problem solver and again everyone wanting him. he is going to speak like reagan did or talk like paul ryan. i don't think that is what his strength is. maybe just maybe he needs to do what he is best at. his surrogates can go out and make the philosophical case. >> bill: trump may be is endorsing him. >> but he has to avoid the saturday night live. >> bill: he has to say that. is trump marinated? >> think he is marinated in the right thinking on our trade policy. yes. >> bill: i love it. i did a radio and commentary. >> we are interelectric tools on the radio and we have a hard
time phrasing things correctly. >> bill: and on the white house enemy's list and president obama doing the same thing as richard nixon did. occupy protestors throw condoms at catholic school girls coming on up.

>> bill: impact segment charges that president obama has an enemy had list. the koch brothers are on it. they run a conglomerate. they are worth $25 billion each. they are conservative donating about $3 million to republican causes since 1990. reports that a men did massive to conservative groups this year. on january 18th president obama released this ad. >> secret billionaires attacking president obama and independent watchdogs caused his record on ethics, president obama. to strength the economy. >> i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >> reference to secretive billionaires is the koch
brothers. >> let's walk through this. enemies' list. is there an enemies' list at the white house and other names on them? >> it's clear the president has certain people in his crosshairs. after all this is a gentleman who said, never bring knife to a gunfight. but we think since 2010 a sustained okay stated smear campaign against private individuals. >> bill: you are not saying this is a written list ordinary the koch brothers are on it. that probably true. what has the white house done to your bosses? what have they done? >> let's dial back the clock to
2010 at a private fund-raiser, high dollar fund-raiser, he went after a group and made a similar reference to one of the brothers that really wasn't an american company. following on the heels of that, highly placed administration official got on the phone with some reporters and accused koch industries of not paying taxes. this is i think malicious. >> bill: irs giving you a hard time? >> actually there is a building next could ch industries, some implication of the size of the government footprint, it's occupied full time by the irs. goldstein's approach was wrong. there is no such thing as a casual reference to an american company on a call like that when
we --. >> bill: have you been unfairly audited by the irs? >> we get audited every year. i can't say we have been unfairly audited but a white house official accused the company of not paying their taxes appropriately on the feen phone call with this reporter. >> bill: under the clinton administration i was audited three years in wreo. i was targeted. i was targeted by the irs because of political reasons. we had to tell them that if it continued there was going to be trouble, big trouble. now, the thing that i have seen against the koch brothers is a number of left publications attacking them. that is done in coordination. the attacks come with could have ch industries dealing with iran, they did the little g.e. get around to deal with iran when
they shouldn't. you say? >> i said they did business with iran very minimal amount. they decided voluntarily to cease years ago. i think it was about $20 million in u.s. dollars over a long period of time. they voluntarily held themselves to a higher standard than u.s. law. ens that --. >> bill: but they are not doing it now. >> they voluntarily ceased and voluntarily held themselves to a higher standard. compare that to the lack of coverage of g.e.. >> bill: we know the deal. got two more questions and i have short amount of time. >> massachusetts koch industries is one of top air polluters in the u.s.a.? >> they are one of the largest manufacturers. there is list of people who in their industries creating -- if
you look at the list. u.s. manufacturer these are people with one side they want to help manufacturing jobs. on the other side they are calling other things. >> bill: global warming legislation, they fight that. $200 million is going to be donated? >> i have not heard that figure. i have not heard that figure. i hope there is a fierce engagement on both sides. i think this debate is profound. >> bill: what figure have you heard? >> i have not heard a definitive figure. >> bill: but there will be some money to obama pacs, fair? >> i think there will be resources directed to engage in this debate. if there was a reference, dollar deficit. >> bill: i'm trying to get on

>> bill: in addition to that, they threw condoms at catholic school girls and shouted down a priest that was trying to lead a prayer. margaret hoover and gretchen carlson. this story is under reported on the national level because it makes the occupy wall street people look terrible. two dozen show up in providence, rhode island and they sing patriotic songs and they have prayers and have a vigil. then what happened when the occupiers show up? >> they've been doing this 39 years right to life. occupy wall street and possibly another group rhode island sexism league may have been responsible for this. they chanted allowing the priests not to say the prayers they have normally done. they physically assaulted, maybe
that is too strong of a word, they bumped a state representative. they called the xom police. third thing they did, according to the quote, they threw condoms from the balcony some came down on the catholic girls. me they were announced being from religious school. >> you know they were from the pro-life crowd. look.... >> bill: let's stay with the facts. anybody arrested that we know of? >> no one arrested but representative was hit in the head with some of the signs. didn't turn violent necessary i but police were notified ahead of time because the organizer of the event had seen some of this
hag in washington, d.c. the week before. there had been things indicating on his facebook page that to be prepared. capital police were on alert. and it turned into a moss pit. >> bill: how do we know they were occupy protestors? >> they took responsibility. they acknowledged on the facebook page in their conversations they were there protesting. irony of all this occupy crowd had asked the city of providence for a homeless bill. city couldn't provide so the catholic church provided it. >> bill: so the catholic church is sheltering them and then they go out. >> we never heard back a statement from the rhode island sectarian league or sexism league. >> bill: i don't care about them but i do care about the occupy wall street people. this is not an economic protest.
that is not what occupy wall street really is. this is far left social movement designed to attack people with whom they disagree and the pro-life movement is target number one. >> that is some of the things their signs said. high school girls, abortion doctors are my hero and there a picture of jesus and some signs i can't really say on national television. >> they are trying to figure out what the occupy wall street movement stands for. we know what happened before. planned parenthood rallies in the same rotunda. here is the occupy wall street and not a single one of them but. >> bill: occupy wall street isn't in support of anything. they don't like barack obama. they are really far left.
>> let me show you an interesting spot. they say they represent 99% but the latest polls show 50% of americans are actually against abortion. >> bill: right. all right. the reason y we do theeg these segments. what we said at the beginning is absolutely true. far left anarchist movement. ladies, good work. we appreciate it. we are sorry about the girls in rhode island. we're sorry you had to go through that. it's part of the process in this country. factor moves along, megyn kelly on whether eric holder go down. jesse waters on the rivalry in the superbowl. >> what do you have to say about that. >> on the o'reilly factor they have a segment called patriots

evidence linking him but they are trying to figure out who who approved this program, bill. he still says, they are still investigating. who approved it and who signed off it and lawmakers says it's been 13 months since brian terry died. when the operation was uncovered. we know that already. >> bill: let's recap. this is the fifth time they called holder up. >> sixth. >> bill: and they want to embarrass him. >> because it's political. >> bill: it's a political thing. holder says he doesn't know. >> they are grilling him over the non-production of documents. >> bill: if you don't come up with them. he is going to be contempt with congress. come up with this stuff. it is political in any other way
than the truth. but holder looks like he just don't know what is going on in something that is vitally important. he says he has appointed the inspector general to investigate this to get to the bottom. apparently he thinks it does. holder says he does not believe the american people have lost faith. that they know it's political. this is basically a witch hunt. >> bill: let me stop you there. that is holder position. they are trying to get me because i'm democrat and close to barack obama. but if the family files a $25 million against the justice department, that is where it would be directed, then holder is going to be deposed? >> no, he will not. >> bill: he will be able to she would from the deposition? >> as matter of law, that claim will stay out. >> first of all he has immunity. >> bill: just like judges.
